A record lottery was drawn last week, so I’m sure there are a lot of people that were pondering “What would I do with the money if I won?”.  It’s also a little ironic because back in January Matter of Cents and I had scheduled this week’s Pin Me! Thursday theme to be “If I Had a Million Dollars….”.  Because those “if I…” conversations were already fresh in my mind, it wasn’t hard to put together my list this week.

First up would be to build our dream home, maybe something like this one (can you just imagine sitting on a swing or in rocking chairs on this deck, drinking hot chocolate, while the kids run around outside catching lightning bugs?)

Of course, the dream home would have to have a big, open kitchen.  Maybe something like this.

Dream Home - Kitchen

And since it’s a dream home, it would have a crafting/gift wrapping/office like this (a dream, because there’s no way I’d have time to use it for the next 17 years):

Dream Home - Crafting Room, Wrapping Room, Home Office

And a bathroom something like this (with a fireplace in there, somewhere).

Dream Home - Bathroom

With a room for Bubbles like this… (not sure why, but it makes me think of Winkin’, Blinkin’, and Nod)

Dream Home - Baby's Room

…until she’s older, and then something like this (that’s a PIRATE SHIP you can see in the mirror reflection. That they can climb up into, climb the crow’s nest, and basically just rock their worlds):

Dream Home: Kids' Bedroom - Pirate Theme

Plus a very cool bunk room like this one, great for family at holidays or a place for A1’s college and A2’s HS friends to crash.

Dream Home: Bunkhouse

And a beautiful outdoor entertaining area with a kitchen (it must also have a pizza oven).

Dream Home: Outdoor Living Area

Then maybe a little bling?  I love Princess-cut.

Dream Home: Diamond Ring

And some travel.  I’d love to see the lantern festival in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Dream Home: Dream Vacation, Honolulu Hawaii

And then wrap up with a little shopping spree to fill up the new walk-in closets in the new house.

Dream Home: Filling the Closets

What would YOU do with a million dollars?
